Corker: I would vote to bring the flag down

Posted: Updated:

U.S. Sen. Bob Corker says he would vote for the Confederate flag to come down if he were in South Carolina.

The former Chattanooga mayor was on MSNBC's ‘Morning Joe' Monday, explaining his position on the flag that continues to be a dividing subject for many Southerners.

“[I]t's a state issue, and I acknowledge that it's a state issue…[I]f I were there, I would certainly vote to have it come down,” said Corker. “It serves no purpose anymore, especially after what has occurred [in Charleston]. I was born in South Carolina. I lived in South Carolina the first 11 years of my life. I love South Carolina, but I think in light of what's happened, there's no question from my perspective over what ought to happen.”
